The Bureau of the Congress of Deputies already has the Proposed Law that asks the Government of Spain to waive its share of the interests of the earthquake aid (05/11/2018)

The initiative demands that the Central Government follow the line established in this sense by the Autonomous Community, which has already approved a proposal in this regard to contribute to aid to the families that received public aid after the earthquakes.

The Mayor of Lorca, Fulgencio Gil, along with the National Representative Isabel Borrego, reported that the Bureau of the Congress of Deputies has already received the Proposition of Law by amending art.

8.3 of Royal Decree-Law 6/2011, of May 13, which takes urgent measures to repair the damage caused by the earthquakes of 2011. The change refers to the Government of Spain renouncing interest and penalties for delay of public aid derived from earthquakes, as the Regional Government has already done.

It should be noted that the Lorca earthquake has been the most serious in our country in its recent history, the situation that has passed many thousands of families has been dramatic and even today, seven years later, there are strong consequences in a population that It is still recovering from the strong impact suffered.

In 2011, Royal Decree 4 and 6/2011, of May 13, were adopted, which adopted urgent measures to repair the damage caused by seismic movements that occurred on May 11, 2011 in Lorca, where the requirements for access were regulated. to the exceptional aid contemplated, as well as the justification procedures that had to be fulfilled.

The time elapsed since the help was obtained by the beneficiaries until the present moment, in which the justification stage is being carried out, causes an enormous difficulty for the interested parties to be able to accredit with invoices and payment justification the works done, since that in some cases the documents have been lost and in other cases the companies that executed the works have disappeared, so it is not possible today to provide the supporting documents.

The same applies to those grant beneficiaries who later withdrew from it and with those who have received help and subsequently receive compensation from the consortium.

In all the above cases, in the case of initiation of reinstatement, the victims not only have to return the subsidies that they have not used or can not justify, but also have to face the surcharge of interest for the 7 years that have elapsed since the subsidy was paid.

This is a problem that is not due to the inaction of the beneficiaries, but is generated by the very delay of the various proceedings initiated and that affects more than 2,000 families in Lorca, of which a total of 742 have already been practiced. self-assessments, which also accrue interest.

The severity of the earthquake in Lorca, and its economic and social consequences after 7 years have elapsed since it, require that exceptionally and exceptionally, a solution be provided to those 2,000 families who must fully or partially justify the aid received at the time .

In this sense, and taking into account the uniqueness of the situation created by the earthquakes of Lorca, as well as the management, processing, resolution and resources of more than 16,000 files led the Government of the Region of Murcia to propose in Law 7/2017 of Budgets of the Region of Murcia for 2018 the cancellation of interests in the files of reimbursement of the aid granted to the victims of the earthquake of Lorca, and that finally was approved in legislative seat.
